Peace shloka

Peace Slokas

Om! Asato ma Sad gamaya Tamaso ma jyothir gamaya Mrytyorma amrutham gamaya

Oh Lord, From the unreal, lead me to the Real; From darkness lead me to Light; From death, lead me to immortality.

Om sahanaa vavatu sahanau bhunaktu sahaveeryam karavaavahai tejaswinaa vadheetamastu maa vid vishaa vahai om shaanthih, shaanthih, shaanthihi

May he protect all, may he nurture all, may we all perform together the most heroic and divine actions; may our learning be prosperous to all; may we never quarrel on the different beliefs we may have; may we illuminate together, may we live in harmony. May there be peace for all and for ever.

Aum Purnamadaha Purnamidam Purnat Purna Mudachyate. Purnasya purnam adaya purna mevavshishyate.

The Lord is perfect, Perfect also is the Universe. If any portion is subtracted from the Perfect, that which is taken and that which remains is yet Perfect.

Vakratunda Mahakaaya, Suryakoti Samaprabha. Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva, Sarva Karyeshu Sarvada.

O Lord Ganesha !You, of the large body and curved trunk, with the luster of a million suns, please remove all obstacles from my path.

Anjana Nandanam, Veeram, Janaki Shoka Naashanam. Kapeesham, Aksha hantaaram, Vande Lanka Bhayankaram.

Lord Hanuman!
The son of Anjana, the brave hero, the destroyer of the grief of Janaki, the chief of monkeys, the slayer of Aksha kumara, the terror of Lanka, I salute to you.

Manojavam marutatulya-vegam, jitendriyam buddhimatam varishtham, Vatatmajam vanarayutha-mukhyam, Shri Rama-dutam sharanam prapadye.

We take refuge with Hanuman, who is as fast as the mind and wind; who has full control over his senses, who is excellent in geniuses, who is the son of the wind and the leader of all the vanaras and represents Lord Shri Rama.

Lord Shiva!
Vande Shambhum Uma pathim Suragurum Vande Jagat Kaaranam Vande Pannaga Bhushanam Mrugadharam Vande Pashunaam Pathim Vande Surya Sashanka Vahni Nayanam Vande Mukunda Priyam Vande Bhakta Janaashrayam cha Varadam Vande Shivam Shankaram

Praise to Shambhu, Husband of Uma (Parvathi), Guru of the divine devas, hail the cause of Universe, Praise the one whose ornaments are the gemstone bearing cobras, one who bears the animals, Praise the protector of living beings, Praise the one whose eyes are the sun, moon, and fire (of knowledge), Praise the one dear to Vishnu, Praise the one who provides refuge to devotees, to the giver of boons, Praise to the auspicious Shankara!

Shantakaaram Bhujaga Shayanam Padmanaabham Suresham
Vishaawadharam Gagana Sadrusham Meghavarnam Subhaangam.
Laxmikaantam Kamalanayanam Yogibhir-Dhyaanagamyam,
Vande Vishnum Bhavabhaya Haram Sarvalokaika Naatham.

Oh, Lord Vishnu!
Lord, of peaceful appearance, resting on the serpent, with a lotus from a navel, you are the lord of lords.
You are the basis on the whole universe, vast like the sky, colored as the cloud, every limb of you is auspicious,
Beloved of Laxmi, lotus eyed, capable of being reached through meditation by yogis.
We bow to you, the lord of all worlds, Vishnu.

Vasudeva sutam Devam Kamsa Chanoora mardhanam
Devaki paramanandam
Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum

(For the full text of the ashtakam, click on the link below)
I salute to Lord Krishna, who is the Son of Vasudeva, Who killed Kamsa and Chanoora, Who is the source of Bliss to His mother Devaki and who is the Teacher of the Universe.

Kasturi Tilakam Lalaatapalake Vakshasthale Koustubham
Nasaagre Navamouktikam Karatale Venum Kare Kankanam.
Sarvaange Harichandanam cha kalayam Kanthe cha Muktaavali
Gopastree Pariveshtite Vijayate Gopaala-Chudamanih.
He who wears Tilaka made of Kasturi in his broad forehead, Wearer of Koustubha, the rarest of gems, in his majestic chest. He who wears the rarest of pearls in the bridge of his nose, carries a flute in his hand, and beautiful bangles of gold. He who wears soulful sandal all over his body, and the rarest of all gems in this world around his neck, and plays with the Gopika damsels. Victory to you, Oh, Lord Krishna !

Goddess Lakshmi, who is the daughter of the king of the ocean of milk, whose abode is Srirangam, who is served by all the divine ladies in heaven, who is the guiding light of the world, who has obtained the everlasting glance from Brahma, Indra and Shiva, who lives in the three worlds (Bhu, Bhuva, Suvaha), one who is dear to Mukunda (Krishna) - I offer my salutations to you.

Mrutyunjayaaya Rudraaya
Neelakantaaya Shambhave
Amriteshaaya Sarvaaya
Mahadevaaya Te Namaha

I pray to Lord Shiva who has conquered death, who is the destroyer of the universe, the one with blue neck and who gives happiness to all.

Raamaya Raama Bhadraaya, Raamachandraaya Vedhase. Raghunaathaya Nathaya, Sitayaha Pataye Namaha.

Salutaions to Lord Sri Rama, Ramabhadra, RamaChandra, Brahma-swarupa, Raagunatha, Sitapathi.

Sri Rama Rama Rameti Rame Rama manorame Sahasranama tat tulyam Rama nama varanane

The meaning of this shloka is that chanting the name of Sri Rama even once is equivalent to saying the Vishnu Sahasranama a thousand times (As stated by Lord Siva to Parvati). Therefore, the advice is to chant at least this one line if one cannot find time to chant the whole of the Vishnu Sahasranama.

Sree Raaghavam Dasharathaatmajamaprameyam
Seethaapatim Raghukulaanvaya Ratnadeepam
Aajaanubahum Aravinda-dalaayataaksham
Raamam Nishaachara-vinaashakaram Namaami

I salute to Lord Raaghava (Sri Rama), Dasharatha's son, Sithadevi's husband, and the shining light of RaghuVamsa. Oh Lord, the broad shouldered, and lotus eyed Rama, Please alleviate my fears, and drive away all the evils.

Sugreeva Mithram Paramam Pavithram |
Sitha Kalatram Navamegha Gaatram |
Kaarunya Paathram Sathapathra Nethram |
Sri Rama Chandram Satatam Namaami ||

Mrityunjaya manthram
Trayambakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam
Vurvaaruka miva bandhanaath, mrutyormushtiyamaamrutaath
